Bright Buttons

I've been embellishing my quilts with buttons lately and have seriously depleted my stash.
Yesterday, I looked all over town for reasonably priced brightly colored buttons that I need for two works in progress.

I finally struck gold at Michaels (my fifth stop). They have bags of buttons, and I bought 4 sandwich sized bags full for less than $20. They appear to be collections of factory surplus buttons. Perfect! I can hardly wait to sew them on!

Thanks for the heads-up, Cynthia! I headed to Michael's today and came home with a treasure trove of buttons! Now I'm happily sorting them by color and putting them into an organizer to make them easier to select. I also plan to merge my cookie tin of buttons into the purchased stash so I don't have to look there too!
